Menlo Park

Young families are attracted by its top-rated schools and large lots, but the walkability and close-knit community.

Menlo Park: The Place to Be

Like a finely aged wine, Menlo Park is shaped by its history and refinement. While its stately architecture and history as a popular home for 19th century San Francisco businessmen lend a throwback vibe, Menlo Park's location alongside expanding tech giants keeps it forward-thinking. Young families are attracted by its top-rated schools and large lots, but the walkability and close-knit community inspire people to put down roots and stay. Just a hop away from Palo Alto and Redwood City, Menlo Park is a draw in itself, with beloved community gathering spots like Cafe Borrone and Santa Cruz Avenue alive at all hours of the day.

Top Reasons to Choose Menlo Park

1. Prime Time - Menlo Park has the advantage of prime real estate, situated in the heart of the upstart corridor, with Facebook, Linked In, and Google expanding. Minutes away, Stanford University and its affiliated hospital, and many sporting events are compelling draws. Getting around is easy with residents enjoying the many commuting options, traveling via 101, 280, or Caltrain.

2. Cruisin’ the Cruz - Saunter down Santa Cruz Avenue and you’ll be instantly beguiled by the charming small-town feel of downtown Menlo Park. Ristorante Carpaccio, around for generations, and The Refuge, with everyone’s favorite pastrami and beer, sit alongside cozy coffee shops and boutiques. From the bi-annual Sidewalk Strolls to Summer Fest to Sunday morning farmer’s markets, Santa Cruz Avenue is the Menlo Park’s hub.

3. Classic Yet Modern - Spacious lots are a hallmark of Menlo Park’s broad tree-lined streets. Though styles vary from ranches to salt boxes to modern new construction, its homes boast winding front paths through lush yards. Townhouses, somewhat alleviating the recent housing crunch, sit further east while West Menlo finds itself in a more pastoral setting.

4. Time for School - Young families are drawn to Menlo Park for the top-rated schools, such as Oak Knoll and La Entrada. Strong academic performance and parent involvement mean sharp, happy kids. While walking to or volunteering at their schools just a few blocks away, parents forge tight-knit enduring communities that make the town what it is.
